Hi, the machine starts to spin but doesnt do a complete one. Its not draining the water either so all my clothes are soaking. Have tried spinning it with nothing in it but still not draining or full spinning. Have switched off by plug. Is there a special knack like my old Indesit,, where you need to reset the control board by moving the dials a certain way!!
Have you tried cleaning the filter at the bottom. remove the front plateat the bottom and there is a small round plate at the left. this has a screw in it. when you have removed this you give it a twist. a bucketload of water and gunk will come out. i found about 60p in 5's but when it was all removed it started to work again
Thanks lilvix - spot on! My Hoover HNL 842 had stopped draining and spinning. I did what you suggested and it fixed the problem. A "colour catcher" sheet had gone down the drain and plugged up the exit pipe. I managed to pull it out after unscrewing that filter. Hint - have a load of old towels to hand as a good five pints of water came rushing out as soon as the blockage was cleared.
Cheers once again - Matt

Many machines will not even go to rinse or spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter- so many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.
Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motorfilter and the drain motor ;-0)
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play. It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
I would suggest that the drum is out of alignment because the main bearings have failed, or the drum shaft has collapsed due nto corrosion.
Spin the drum by hand, and listen for any noise, there should not be any, and see if the drum rotates centrally in relation to the outer drum
clothes are wet after spinning this is due to faulty Motor coupler. test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.If not then the coupler is broken.It has to be replaced;.This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.-----------------------If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.Thanks.
Hi, Following will be the causes for water not draining properly 1.There is a motor/Pump which operates to to drain the water check whether that motor is working. 2.Check filter and clean it 3.Check the drain pipeline whether it clear 4.Check the inlet valve of the machine Sometimes the drain works properly but the inlet solenoid valve will not hold and the water keeps coming in and fills the drum
my hoover nextra hnl 662 want wash or spin and the delay staart light flashes 5 times please help iv only had the machine a year and had nothing but trouble with it wouldnt recomend one of these washing machines to anyone jakki
It's a safety feature that doesn't allow the machine to spin when there's still water in the tub. The drain pump has probably failed and you would need to replace it (there are some good places online where you can buy appliances spare parts). Try to set your machine on a 'Drain' cycle and see if the pump works.
It is very likely you need to replace the motor brushes. These are the electrical conections in the motor that wear after a time. They are fairly cheap, uses-replaceable, and available from online appliance specialists.
Turn off water and unplug before removing top/ back pannel to access motor. ***** CHECK MOTOR TYPE BEFORE ORDERING PARTS ******
